Binki Shapiro and Jordana Bink Shapiro -one and the same?

I am adding links to the following Soundtrack item in the film, "Paper Man (2009)".

"Unattainable"
Written by Fabrizio Morizetti & Jordana
"Binki" Shapiro
Performed by Little Joy
Courtesy of Rough Trade Records LTD 

A search for ‘Little Joy’ on IMDB does not return an entry for this term, but does provide three names, all members of the band:

Fabrizio Morizetti
Binki Shapiro
Rodrigo Amarante

The one glitch is that a search for ‘Binki Shapiro’ also returns

Jordana 'Bink' Shapiro (nm1073634

 I can add a link for Binki Shapiro to the Soundtrack item and, following on, I would expect to merge the two name entries. However, I lack sufficient evidence to do the merge.

‘Jordana 'Bink' Shapiro’ has only one credit as an actress in ‘thirtysomething’ in the late 1980s. She played a child character, Brittany Weston, and was replaced in late 1990 by Lyndsay Riddell (nm0725709). Photos of Shapiro (and other cast members) appear on

https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=112209862

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092492/characters/nm1073634 

 ‘Binki Shapiro’ (nm3276372) has no credits prior to 2009, when her first credit occurs – an appearance on ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’ (TV Series) as a member of the band. Little Joy.

I am wondering whether anyone knows for certain/ has any proof that ‘Jordana 'Bink' Shapiro’  is the same person as ‘Binki Shapiro’ of the band, Little Joy. 

I am fairly confident that they are one and the same but I have not been able to find anything that provides a definite link between the two individuals.

And then, if they are one and the same, which direction would the merge take?

 Merge 'Binki Shapiro' into ‘Jordana 'Bink' Shapiro’, leaving the ‘Jordana 'Bink' Shapiro’ intact and eliminating the ''Binki Shapiro'  entry, or do it the other way around.

Hi Graham,

Please hold off on the merge until you're sure that these 2 pages relate to the same individual. If they do turn out to be the same person I would merge the pages the other way around retaining nm3276372 as the main name page and get rid of Jordana 'Bink' Shapiro.

I hope this helps. I'll move this to the "I need to know" section now.

Regards,
Will

Thanks, Will.

I have no intention of merging the names until I have confirmation that they are one and the same.
